Planting Lavender

Posted: 10/08/2015 at 11:53


 Photo is end of June, but France is ahead of UK.

My lavender hedge did well this year. It is Hidcote, (I think, but could be Munstead which is bluer and paler, bought it about 8 years ago) a dwarfish purple one that flowers on the early side. It is now over and a bit messy so I must clip it. I also have a bigger one with pale grey leaves and lilac flowers that is flowering now, think it smells a bit stronger. I live in SW France and lavender like it here as it can be very sunny and warm in summer.

Morning all.

Have taken the car to the garage for servicing and replied to lots of emails. Some days there are none, then they all come at once. My family is busy at the moment, daughter just moved house, son moving next week, SIL and BIL trying to sell theirs, son on hols but their baby has had a virus, friend's daughter getting married etc!

That looks a lovely place for a wedding.

Just gorgeous Chicky, thank you. When I went it was June, not this year, but it was so different then. Lots of colour now, but the roses were lovely in June.

Just popping in to say hello, haven't watched so much TV since last winter! Just watched the 1st Bake Off that I'd missed because of helping my daughter to move house. Watched Escape to the Continent too, horsey people going to Normandie. Looks cheaper there than here, lovely scenery. Did the ironing though, while watching.

Weather has completely changed, only 17° and pouring. Garden looks happy, but not the petunias! But 28° is forecast for Tuesday.

Morning all. Still raining. Lawns are greening up but a lot is weeds. May need to re-sow some in the autumn. No coffee for me, thanks Dove, or I'll want to go to the loo in church

I think it could be a flower spike still in bud of a plant like an aruncus or an astilbe.

That seems quick Steve! Did you like Wisley? Have you any photos? Did you buy any plants? Did you meet anyone from here?
